Open Futures 2021 will enable 8 artists, consisting of 4 collaborating pairs, from the fields of dance and the digital arts, to investigate and explore the potential for interdisciplinary exchange that encompasses practices for the stage, gallery, installation, and outdoor settings. With an emphasis on creative process, the project will facilitate experimentation and exploration of methods and approaches. This process will occur within a mentored and technically supported environment.
Open Futures 2021 is designed around a two-week creative process residency for 4 dance and media artist pairs, peer exchange and facilitated discussions with practitioners working in dance and technology and a €5K continuity bursary awarded to one selected artist pair to continue beyond the residency period.
Open Futures 2021 supports dance artists and media artist’s time, space, and equipment to work in collaboration over 2 weeks. Applicants may either propose their own collaborator or request to be partnered with one working in their area(s) of interest. (In this instance Light Moves and consultants will match collaborators in relationship to interest and experience.)
